    1985 Topps Roger Clemens #181 BGS Pristine 10 - With Three "10" Subgrades! The fortunes of Roger Clemens have taken quite a turn since his MLB debut in 1984. I just his second year the "Rocket" went 24-4 with a 2.48 ERA earning his first of seven Cy Young Awards and AL MVP honors. The Clemens rookie from the 1985 Topps issue can be tough to find at such high grades due to the vivid bright white borders that surround the card image. That being said, we offer this example of the Rocket's debut pro entry from the '85 Topps issue grading BGS Pristine 10! Subgrades are: Centering 10, Corners 10, Edges 10, Surface 9.5. Good luck finding why the surface isn't a perfect ten as well. One of only eight to grade Pristine 10 from a total pop of almost 7,900 which put it among the top one-tenth of one percentile.
